Thoughts About Giving: Obligations, Gifts and Choices

You can do more than you ever thought possible. Planning your estate allows you to both fulfill obligations and make gifts. It’s called sequential planning.

Many people begin by considering their obligations—commitments we have made to care for a spouse, children or other loved ones.  Those are listed in your will or trust first. Astonishingly, our assets often allow those obligations to be met with money left over. Once that happens, everything we do with our property is really a gift.

This is where The Cedars and other favorite charities come in. Your planned gift to The Cedars helps to provide the long-range stability that is simply not possible through annual giving.
